Future of Air Mobility accelerator webinar

View Event Details

Event finished: 9th September 2021

Extensive conversations with industry and internal market research have led us to the conclusion that through the collaboration of industry, academic, government and regulatory partners, our programme can convene innovation across a variety of key and immediate industry challenges.

The vision for the programme is a consortium approach whereby partners of the programme can innovate and trial new technologies collaboratively with SMEs. Through the collected efforts of Connected Places Catapult and industry stakeholders, we will provide the needed delivery support and access to governing and regulatory bodies within air mobility.

Subsequently, Connected Places Catapult are looking for a variety of partners who can provide access to testing facilities and data feeds to enable the SMEs to test and trial their technologies. Through access to government and regulatory bodies, we will equally ensure the roadmap to securing lasting partnerships through aligning the accelerator with the long-term vision of government regulations and strategy.

Our webinar will cover the analysis we have collated through internal market research, our accelerator process, talks from our current collaborators on the value derived through the accelerator and finally the consortium opportunities available to partners.

About Future of Air Mobility (FAM)
Future of Air Mobility (FAM) is a new, challenge-led 6 month accelerator programme powered by Connected Places Catapult. Working with industry partners to identify pain points and key strategic objectives, Connected Places Catapult will source and select 12 SMEs with highly innovative solutions at TRL 6+ operating across a number of sectors. Each SME will receive a bespoke programme roadmap tailored to their requirements, including investment readiness, technology and product development support, along with introductions to aviation stakeholders and potential customers. These activities will be co-designed with SMEs in order to grow their businesses and adapt propositions to programme partner requirements, with the aim of reducing time to market for disruptive technologies by facilitating trials and commercial opportunities.

Through a focus on new and emerging challenges within the aviation ecosystem, FAM will work alongside a consortium of partners across industry, government, academia and regulation, to ensure that the programme tackles significant sector challenges and de-risks innovation in the marketplace.
